song when james brown, this great hit "talking loud and saying nothing." one year ago, mitt romney gave a speech at the citadel on foreign policy. it was billed and marketed as a huge speech. he will tell us how he would make the world a better place, how he would do things differently. and there wasn't a lot of meat there. once again, mitt romney had 23 minutes, he used 23 minutes, i counted them. and he basically said nothing. i agree with the president that we -- let's just get tougher with iran. we need to arm the rebels in syria, use third parties to help advance our case. he made some mistakes and blunders, of course. one mistake is that he said, this president's done nothing on free trade agreements. i guess south korea and panama, colombia -- >> didn't count for him. >> but overall, mitt romney is trying to prove -- this is his whole argument, that republicans are tougher when it comes to foreign policy. you know what? that's the old playbook. there's a new playbook because there's a new sheriff in town and that's barack obama. >> i think this was a real step backwards. last wee

not only talking to joe biden and paul ryan, i'm talking to obama and romney. these guys have sense of humors. maybe ryan is about as funny as a rand novel. >> you've got to fake spontaneity. >> be smart. >> it would be great if you can fake it, but just trust yourself. in this moment, i'm going to trust my instincts and make a joke. and that might be the thing that gets picked up all the next week. >> i hope romney never takes that advice because every time romney tries to be funny it's like the least funny thing i've ever heard in my life. but for the other three i think that's totally sensible. >> could be if you got no game, don't go there. >> i've seen romney being funny when he's being real. when it's written for him, he can't deliver the line. we're out of time. thanks so much to wolf blitzer for letting us borrow the room. right back to him right now. >>> pete, thanks, guys, very much. speaking of ian rand, i'm quoting "the answer to problems we are having in this country." now he has something very different to say about the author. someone who wrote "atlas shrug in the vir

for ryan to explain the romney/ryan plan. give all the time he can to ryan to talk about his plan. >> are you saying that vice president joe biden has a propensity for ver basty. >> ryan should talk more. >> should he bring a white board so ryan can do the math? >> i don't think the math adds up. give him a $2 calculator and let him play with it. >> biden has to defend the obama budget out 10, 20, 30 years where everything crashes and burns. he hasn't put a measure on the ballot. the democratic senate hasn't put out a budget and they haven't put out any reforms for entitlements. >> those guys don't want a white board. >> the good thing about obama is with him you get what you -- what he says. he's been very clear the whole time. he wants a balanced approach. he wants to cut here. he wants to raise taxes here. with the hat tricks from romney, you don't know what you're going to get. >> i think grover got into more and you did, van, more substance than we might see tonight. there's going to be all this substance and policy talk, but it's style. these debates are style. which is why

romney interview, he talks about his tax plan, his 47 comment and what he would do about iran's nuclear program. and paul ryan pumps iron. jeannie moos takes a look at those controversial workout photos. i'm wolf blitzer and you're in "the situation room." >> we begin with a dramatically changed political lancape as we head into tuesday's second debate between president obama and governor romney. poll after poll shows momentum building behind the romney/ryan tukt and there's pressure on the president now to wrap up his game for the three-week sprint to election day. let's bring in our correspondent, we're getting reaction to the vice presidential debate, more comments coming in. but the president has his mission cut out for him right now. dan? >> he really does. we just have to look back to right after the debate where the president turned up his volume, strongly aggressively going after his gop opponents. but what we saw this week at the university of miami on thursday at a big rally there was the president even turning up the volume a bit more. attacking mitt romney for what t

fundamentally going to change those doubts. >> and mitt romney will still talk about the 23 million unemployed in this country. >> and under employed. >> right. and he's going to continue to hit that and say that the president hasn't solved the problem quickly enough. the problem for romney is he's walking a fine line. because when there's good news, he can't seem to be dour about it because he's depending on bad news. so he does walk a fine line. >> it's good news for the country if there are jobs being created. >> and the other thing is how baked in people's minds. >> it's past the point where the perception has changed very much. >> here's what you wrote. one of those vulnerabilities is obama's inability so far to enlighten voters about the second-term joend. to the extent the president outlined goals during the debate, they were largely defensive. >> i think he was criticizing the ryan-esque vision on medicare and taxes. it's hard to say what else he displayed passion about. i have felt all year this is the biggest hole in their campaign. i don't think he has given americans a c

governor romney must improve in his advertising, campaigning, in the final two debates plus the vice presidential debate. wolf, that's one of the reasons we're here. when you talk to white women especially in the suburbs, one thing that resonates with them they don't like, that 47% remark. a lot of them have struggled the last few years, they found what governor romney said offensive. clearly into the next debate that is one of his challenges. he apologized the other night on fox news to get people to see that that was something he should not have said, didn't mean to say and not the totality of his character. that 47% remark hurting him among women, white women especially. a key constituency here. >> he said he was completely wrong in uttering those words at the closed door fundraiser. i take it you can't watch television in ohio right now, john, for all practical purposes without being saturated by these tv commercials. >> reporter: wolf, remember yesterday we talked about colorado. we were stunned at the $33 million in tv ad spendsing in colorado. colorado seems puny when you matc

trillion tax cut package. >> some say he was coming across as rude. >> listen, toif say, if mitt romney and paul ryan think they're going to talk tough to china but can't handle a little humor by the vice president they need to toughen up a little bit. >> let me clarify for you this point. we heard it from the vice president a couple times last night. i'll play the clip. >> uh-huh. >> the mile class will pay less and people making a million dollars or more will begin to contribute slightly more. >> a million dollars a year more, they'll pay a little more in taxes than people making less than a million. it used to be $200,000 for individuals, $250,000 for couples filing jointly families. now he's talking about a million dollars or more. what's the point there? >> no. the point that the vice president was making is that this tax cut package that mitt romney and paul ryan support absolutely makes no sense because people making over $1 million would benefit by about $800 billion. we still the president, the vice president still absolutely believe that people making over $250,000, their taxe

. the first thing you're talking about with mitt romney and foreign policy had been this trip to europe, europe, poland, israel, the olympics hadn't gone so well. heainen have something to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney a

going to push mitt romney for more specifics. and the reason is he's talking about tax cuts and deficit reduction at the same time. and the pew poll that came out earlier this week, wolf, said six in ten voters believe that romney is promising more than he can deliver. one reason bill clinton's speech was so popular at the democratic convention was he said the arithmetic doesn't add up. so you can push is this just rhetoric during a campaign, or is this real? if you want to close tax loopholes, okay, fine. what loopholes would you close? he's got to answer that. and so far hasn't done it. >> his argument is i don't want to put all that out right now. because if he's president, he's going to have to negotiate all those issues with democrats. and why put your own position out right now. >> sure. >> i don't know if his argument's going to necessarily hold. that's another matter. a lot of folks have seen romney over these past couple weeks at the debate, in the interview with me, moving more towards the center. do you see that? >> i did. i saw that particularly in your interview when he tal

it. i'll tell you as a latino on cnn talking about being pro-romney, i get a lot of hate myself. stacey, stick to your guns, speak your mind. be true to yourself. people have died so we have the freedom to speak our mind and to vote our will. it was martin luther king jr.'s dream, the reason john lewis got beat up. be yourself. vote your conscience. and, folks, we are a nation of tolerance and we value diversity and different opinions. >> that's great advice. now plug your twitter so you can get more criticism. how can people reach you? >> @pete dom nic. >> i think biden is way cooler and going to get the youth vote. i think where biden differentiates himself tomorrow is showing how he's worked in a bipartisan way naming all the different times as a senator, a vp, that he's worked specifically with republicans to get things done. i think that's where obama differentiates himself also. i think romney and ryan are going too much partisanship. i think the one who wins the independent is a candidate. i'm really going to work with people and i've done it as vp, president and senator.

candidate right now that mitt romney doesn't believe he's talking to wealthy voters, because he's got them, he believes. the people he's talking to are the people in the state of ohio who are the middle-income voters, who really want to hear that he's not the big, bad guy who's going to raise their taxes. and jim acosta's right. that's where the fight is really going to be. >> this battle, let's go back to ohio. john king is standing by. john, it's getting closer and closer in ohio and to my surprise, it's even getting closer north in michigan. you would think that after the president saved chrysler and gm, that he would have a bigger advantage right now, but it's shrinking. what's going on? >> well, governor romney's getting a bounce out of that first debate. we've seen it in the national polls. he's now a point or two ahead in some of them. essentially a tie in the national polls after being down three or four. now we're looking at these battleground states. the brand-new poll has him 51-47, so you call that a statistical tile. that michigan poll had them within the margin of error
